7:33 pm
inside the opening ten minutes. will grigg giving david moyes some early headaches. wigan on top against the visitors, an upset was on the cards. west ham were limited to one meaningful chance in the first half. the task got harder after the break. arthur masuaku sent off for spitting at nick powell. with the man advantage, wigan pushed on and were gifted the chance of a second. reece burke adjudged to have handled in the box. penalty. the nerves too much for manager paul cook, though he need not have left. grigg made sure the lead was doubled to see a famous win for wigan. the journey home for west ham may feel that little bit longer tonight. obviously, we are delighted to have such a good wind against a strong team. key moments when for us, the
7:34 pm
sending off, and west ham started the second half so strong, it turned the second half so strong, it turned the game totally in our favour, but credit to our players. in the first half, we deserved it. i thought we we re half, we deserved it. i thought we were the better team. we have the respect teams like west ham, they have a different agenda. anyone you would like alba bad? only liverpool for me, everyone knows me. we are delighted to be in it. what ever the cup offers, i am sure we will enjoy it. a lot more to get through in the fa cup..kat and our football reporter john bennett can talk you through some of the twists and turns. we stick with the result for wigan. it has been the major upset of the day. will grigg again the man forward in. the top scorer in the fa cup with six goals in five games, will grigg's on fire chance will return. he is a fox in the box, typical will grigg goal, great cross as well. but paul cook, who we heard from, he is doing a fantasticjob.
7:35 pm
if you look at the stats at the back, only conceding 13 goals in league1 back, only conceding 13 goals in league 1 this season. once they went ahead, it was hard for the hammers to get back into it and they were poon to get back into it and they were poor. one sour moment, masuaku said for spitting. he could face a ban, perhaps of up to six matches. it was a disgraceful moment, the referee did well to spot it, actually, because it was off the ball, it went down for a throw in. you can see the anger from the wigan players. initially, he will miss games against crystal palace, brighton and watford. west ham are missing key player is, so a stupid moment from him. they've had moyes will be few. a lot to deal with because of the result. let's hear what he had to make from the lost today. you couldn't have called us a premier league team today, because we didn't have enough premier league players in the starting line—up. so it was a really difficult encounter for so it was a really difficult encounterfor us. we so it was a really difficult encounter for us. we had so it was a really difficult encounterfor us. we had a lot of young players in, who we gave a
7:36 pm
chance, but not many of them impressed me and i gave them a chance. i was disappointed with the senior players that they didn't help the younger players more as well. all in all, a disappointing performance and result, but we have said before, we actually think we have biggerfish to said before, we actually think we have bigger fish to fry at this time. for a while, it looked like the wigan result was not going to be the biggest upset of the round. newport county will be going to wembley for a fourth round replay with spurs after holding their premier league oponents to a 1—1 draw at rodney parade. it could've been even better for the fourth tier side who led for much of the match, only for harry kane to score a late equaliser. joe lynskey reports. it's the competition that throws up the culture clashes, rodney parade feels a long way from wembley stadium, this is where football is at its purist. when you take on the big teams, its risk and reward, the league 2 side were getting on the front foot. they use this pitch for by front foot. they use this pitch for rugby some weekends, frank nouble's finish was closer to a conversion, but here were signs the surface
7:37 pm
could be a leveller, even spurs's best struggled with it. the premier league side were given a warning. soon, the magic moment was coming. wilmot has put soon, the magic moment was coming. will itt has put if “g; ~ ' sing this had the makings of a most for, this had the makings of a most remarkable upset. it looked like spurs were struggling to find their rhythm, but they do have one player who always perseveres. harry kane has a tap in! spurs are going to dig themselves out of a whole heap of trouble, and you can pretty much count on him. spurs were in a hurry to get the matt won, but this chance for dele alli was the closest they came. a draw means newport can celebrate a famous day, a fourth—round replay at wembley to come with the team from rodney parade getting their day in
7:38 pm
the sun. close to a win, but it is a replay. at the start of the match, they would have been happy with that, but they would have preferred better after going 80 minutes in the lead. i have got to say, the tactics were spot on. workrate was spot on. michael flynn their manager, last season, they were a little points adrift in march and he saved them on the final day. he got it right again today. they needed a moment of quality, tottenham, son with the flick to kane. i am sure newport are wondering how kane was left on his own, but a great performance. these fa ns own, but a great performance. these fans go to wembley. who would have thought that? brilliant performance. not the cup final yet, but a trip to wembley, nonetheless. notts wembley, nonetheless. n otts cou nty wembley, nonetheless. notts county help swansea to a draw, kevin nolan saying his side were magnificent. make of it what you will. here is our report. when you are that age, every adult
7:39 pm
must look like a job, but could notts must look like a job, but could n otts cou nty must look like a job, but could notts county be giant killers against premier league swansea city this afternoon? it didn't look likely in the first half, which was unsurprising given the hosts lost to crawley in the week, while the visitors beat liverpool. with that in mind, right on narsingh!1—0. but what could kevin nolan and his tea m but what could kevin nolan and his team of former premier league players do in the second 45? they started brilliantly. jorge grant went close several times, but missed even the most inviting of openings. he comes across. great chance, headed wide. should have levelled it up. luckily, the leveller did come, and from a familiar source. grant across goal. 1—1. from a familiar source. grant across goal. 1-1. former blackburn striker jon stead has scored in every round of this season's fa cup, but should
7:40 pm
this have stood? the ball looked to have gone out in the build—up. not that notts county minded, they then had to soak up pressure, wilfried bony should have sent his side through. that was how it ended, though. 50 league places separated these sides. this is a real giant of an effort from notts county. absolutely delighted, i thought they we re absolutely delighted, i thought they were fantastic. very unfortunate not to come in 0—0. but i thought the reaction after the break was brilliant. very unlucky not to get a couple more. so absolutely delighted, and proud of them, but that's what they've been doing week in and week out, how they have got to where they are at the minute, second in the league and this point in the cup, hats off to them. hopefully, they will keep going. let's bring you up—to—date with the other fourth—round results for you today. we start with peterborough against leicester. leicester the only premier league side to produce

7:43 pm
brighton have the priority of staying in the premier league. they also have the destruction of the fa cup, but it is good for momentum and they were able to rest plays today, chris hughton making changes to the team. one other goal to show you from the all premier league tie between southampton and watford. southampton winning that 1-0. watford. southampton winning that 1—0. watford, new manager, no wind. a tough start forjavi gracia. a birthday goalforjack a tough start forjavi gracia. a birthday goal forjack stephens, a first win in11 for birthday goal forjack stephens, a first win in 11 for southampton. javi gracia, his priority is the premier league. a tough start for him, a tough introduction to initial ball. john, thanks for staying with us. ball. john, thanks for staying with us. i will round up the few others that we haven't managed to bring you pictures of, because it has been a busy day, huddersfield 1—1. hull city 2—1 against nottingham forest. and sheffield united came through their all championship tie against

7:45 pm
that didn't stop the fans though. the former england captain died at the age of 82. fans who had been on their way to the game instead applauded in the street to pay their respects. he spent his entire career at blackpool before becoming a much respected broadacster with bbc radio. there were also tributes at today's other fa cup ties. celtic are still 11 points clear at the top of the scottish premiership after they and aberdeen both won. the dons beat kilmarnock 3—1 at home to move 3 poinst clear of rangers who face ross county tomorrow. leigh griffiths scored the only goal for celtic in their win against his former club hibs.

7:47 pm
not easy in this blistering evening heat. still, somehow, she managed, fighting back to level the match. with temperatures now becoming the battle, both having to leave the court to cool off. this contest was merely heating up, the final set fitting such an occasion, going one way and then the other. this taking wozniacki to the brink. best point of the match! one more point and her long wait was finally over. oh! she's done it! and you will not see a more popular winner. i've dreamt of this man for so winner. i've dreamt of this man for so and to be here today is a dream come true. my voice is shaking post i never cry, but today is a very moment. wozniacki now a grand slam champion. she becomes world war i, a winner that today took it all. earlier, i spoke to former british number one and french open
7:48 pm
winner sue barker who was pleased for wozniachi who has been on pressure to get the first grand slam win. someone like caroline, who has been in slam finals before, as the years we re in slam finals before, as the years were ticking by, she started on the tour when she was 14, this was her 43rd grand slam event. things were ticking by, thinking, i ever going to win one? for her to come out and do it, this willjust be the greatest day for her. i hope she celebrated. and the way she played, so celebrated. and the way she played, so aggressive, much more so vinci was before. a year ago, her ranking dropped, and was fielding questions about whether she was going to retire or not. but she has many yea rs left. now retire or not. but she has many years left. now she has her hands on one trophy, it could open the door and she could have more. a fantastic advert for the women's game, the conditions were so hot, three sets, they were absolutely going toe to toe. if anyone thinks the women's game isn't as physical as the men's,
7:49 pm
it was fantastic. 3.5 hours or something, they were on court, the rallies were so punishing. the last two points that caroline wozniacki played to win the match, she's going to be looking back at those forever, because they are two of the best point i have seen played. she got everything back, stayed in the point, and so deserved to win. it is so point, and so deserved to win. it is so sad for simona halep. it was one of those matches where you didn't wa nt of those matches where you didn't want either player to lose. she is there be good on the clay, maybe she will get her chance at the french open. i hope so. they both slam. attention switches to the men's, two grand slam champions in that one. roger federer with a few more, shall we say, than marin cilic. what are your expectations for the final? they are saying it could be hotter tomorrow for the final, and that could be an issue if it goes on, but the way fedor —— federer has an playing, he has been racing through
7:50 pm
the draw. but cilic is a dangerous opponent, and roger knows that. he's got big weapons from both sides. if he is on his day, he has a chance to win it, but you just feel that roger has to be a little bit. what roger did against chung in the semifinal, stepping in, so aggressive, inside the baseline, if he starts dip hating the points, there will only be one winner. he is playing better tennis now, roger, now at 36 than he did ten years ago. he is moving better than he did ten years ago. you can only see one winner, and maybe unless he has an off day. rogerfor maybe unless he has an off day. roger for the title, i think.|j think so. that is where the smart money is. ben stokes, has been snapped up this morning, for nearly £1.4 million, in the auction of players, for the indian premier league. he's been bought by the rajasthan royals. that's despite facing a charge for affray, after an incident, outside a nightclub in bristol. the all—rounder, was the most valuable player, of the 20—20 tournament last year.

7:56 pm
a lot of people asked me when i was pregnant about whether i thought i was going to be more scared when i was on the mountain now that i'm a mum, but i don't seem to be. if it's changed me at all, i think it's actually made me more confident. pyeongchang 2018 will be zoe's fourth olympics, and although a medal has always eluded her so far, success at these games would arguably mean more than at any point in her career. the more successful i am at snowboarding, the better my career goes, the more successful i will be and the more i can help out lea and give her a good future and stuff. i'm doing it for me, and i'm doing it for her at the same time. a quick fa cup update, we have had goals in the last of today's fourth—round ties, 1—1 between liverpool and west bank only ten minutes. we will keep you updated throughout the evening, thanks for watching —— between liverpool and west brom. thanks for watching —— between liverpool and west brom. hello. mild conditions at this time
